You can break an object
into two objects with or without a gap between them. You can also
join objects to make a single object.
Use BREAK to create a
gap in an object, resulting in two objects with a gap between them.
BREAK is often used to create space for block or text.
To break an object without creating
a gap, specify both break points at the same location. The fastest
way to do this is to enter @0,0 at the prompt for the second point.
You can create breaks in most geometric objects
Use JOIN to combine similar
objects into a single object. You can also create complete circles
and ellipses from arcs and elliptical arcs. You can join
- Elliptical arcs
The object to which you
want to join similar objects is called a source object. Objects
to be joined must be located in the same plane. Additional restrictions
for each type of objects are described in the JOIN command.
NoteWhen joining two
or more arcs (or elliptical arcs), the arcs are joined counterclockwise
beginning from the source object.
